Tamarind Chutney for Chaat

Tamarind chutney is drizzled over Indian Chaat items along with Mint/Coriander Chutney and diluted yogurt to make a tangy, spicy and tasty snack.Traditionally this is simmered with fresh tamarind to form a thick paste but this is my version of quick chutney.

Preparation time 10 minutes 
Serves 1 cup
Serving Size 1 tablespoon
Calories Per Serving Approximately  per serving
Difficulty Easy

1 cup tamarind paste
3/4 teaspoon red chili powder(adjust to your spiciness)
1 teaspoon coriander powder
pinch ginger powder
pinch black pepper powder
black salt(kala namak) to taste
1 cup sugar or jaggery(adjust to your sweetness)
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon fennel powder

1.Combine all the ingredients in a  bowl and mix until sugar/jaggery is dissolved.

2.Let Simmer on stove for 5 minutes on medium low flame so the mixture thickens. Chill before serving.

If your tamarind paste is too thick you can add little water to let it cook through and not get burnt during simmering.
